Dell teams with Blu-Ray on laptop

New notebook to offer hi-def format

Dell introduces its new laptop that includes Sony’s Blu-Ray disc optical drive. The XPS M1710 notebook, which is aimed at high-performance gaming, will offer the high-definition technology as an optional extra.

The addition of the drive allows users to play Blu-Ray movies, as well as data burning onto discs.

The move cements the computer company’s support for the disc format. Dell has long been a member of the Blu-Ray camp in the hi-def DVD battle and is a founding member of the Blu-Ray Disc Association. Other members of the BRDA include Apple, HP, Hitachi, LG, Matsushita , Pioneer, Philips, Samsung and Sharp.

‘Blu-ray optical drive technology has gained broad industry support and we believe it will become the optical drive standard of the future,’ said Alex Gruzen, senior VP, Dell Product Group.
